Classics – Group B rally cars going to auction in group image

Never ever will a crazy adrenaline spiking rally group like the “Killer B” exist – so if you’re a fan of the series you need to at least see this group of amazing cars that are set to go out with a bang at an upcoming auction.

Group B rally cars were developed for the track and then taken apart and reassembled for road use thanks to homologation rules, and now exactly seven of these incredible rally legends are going to cross the auction block and fall under the hammer for the highest bidder. The amazing – and very dangerous – Group B was sent to the retirement home back in 1986, but we’re pretty sure its legend will live forever. Now if you have the money you can snatch one, two or all of them. We’re discussing about three Lancias – one from Group 4 initially – two Ford RS200, a Peugeot 205 Turbo 16, and an Audi Sport Quattro, all crossing the auction block with no reserve on August 18 at the Quail Lodge Auction.

The 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Stradale was both supercharged and turbocharged, only 200 were ever produced and this particular 480-horsepower example knew just one owner and comes in pristine condition, as the odo has amassed less than 5,530 miles (8,900 kilometers). The 1986 Ford RS200 is one of the most extreme cars ever by the Blue Oval, with its Cosworth 1.8-liter engine and 250 hp in the middle position. The 1985 Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 is the epitome of the day’s idea of pocket rocket, with mid-engine AWD layout, 200 hp and in this case just 745 miles (1,200 km). Last, but not least, the 1985 Audi Sport Quattro S1 was the initiator of the brand’s famous AWD and this unit even has Walter Röhrl’s signature – along with the five-cylinder turbocharged powerplant with about 300 hp. Yep, there’s also a 1975 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale and 1983 Lancia-Abarth 037 Stradale we “forgot” about – we were checking the bank account…
